Accor’s luxury hotels in Asia Pacific have ended the perpetual quest for a perfect Father’s Day gift. Through its groundbreaking initiative called Man Caves, Accor presents a collection of distinctive sanctuaries designed with five paternal personalities in mind. Dads around the world can now celebrate Father’s Day on their own terms in doing the things they love with a total peace of mind.
Based on five of the most dominant daddy traits, Accor’s Man Cave collection allows the most important man in our life to retreat into their personal space. Everyone looking for a gift can identify with these caves, The Luxe Dad, Foodie Dad, Sensitive New Age Guy (SNAG) Dad and Workaholic Dad.
THE LUXE DAD MAN CAVE
At Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi, dads who love the finer things in life will experience the greatest weekend of all time. In addition to a three-night stay in a luxury villa with a private pool, fathers can enjoy a variety of dining and sports activities specially planned for them. From a floating breakfast with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean to a four-course gourmet dinner including wine pairing at Azure Seafood restaurant preceded by a private beach cabana sunset pre-dinner wine and cheese tasting at Onu Onu, Luxe Dads will appreciate this lavish treat.

THE SNAG (SENSITIVE NEW AGE GUY) DAD MAN CAVE
Modern day fathers have evolved above and beyond the traditional breadwinner and disciplinarian in the family. The new-age sensitive dad is now involved in household chores, emotional counselling and also partakes in beauty regimes. On this special day, SNAG Dads are rewarded with a deluxe room night stay with pampering treats at China’s Fairmont Yangcheng Lake that includes manicure and pedicure services followed by a 45 minutes spa treatment at Willow Stream and a therapeutic swim at its mineral pool at USD 335++ per room night.

Package is priced at USD 370++ and is valid from 2 May to 30 June, 2019.
THE COUCH COACHERS MAN CAVE
The Couch Coachers are dads who love their me-time watching sports telecast with beer and snacks for company. Shouting instructions at the television is the only vocal engagement. However, indulgence in their hobby is limited due to work commitments and presence of non-sports fans within the family. At Pullman Nanchang, The Couch Coachers are free to coach the television in the most luxurious environment along with free-flow Tsingtao beer or local beer and a snack, available for the entire day at USD$10++.
Sofitel Ningbo in China also offers three variations of Drink Freely packages for Couch Coachers, each comprising of a six pack beer and Dad’s choice of favourite snacks.
THE WORKAHOLIC DAD MAN CAVE
The Workaholic Dad package is perfect for fathers who desperately need a digital detox. He is always on his phone or laptop and working round the clock, to the detriment of family time. Since he is too busy to check himself into a Silent Retreat, Sofitel Zhengzhou will bring it to him on Father’s Day. To start the experience, all work-related devices will be locked away in a safe so that Workaholic Dads can indulge in from assorted board games to a picnic lunch to be enjoyed by the family in the great outdoors. Dads and their families will also receive complimentary passes to the swimming pools and Zhengzhou Zijingshan Park where they can spend some muchneeded quality family time. The package is available from at USD$101++ per night.
With more than 1100 hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific, Accor’s Man Cave retreats inject a creative twist to a typically uninspiring Father’s Day celebration while giving them the gift of time to indulge according to their personality, hobby and interests.
